Nissan opens the order books for all-new Interstar

Pre-orders are now open for the diesel variant of Nissan’s all-new Interstar, the brand’s largest LCV which shares its platform and most of its bodywork with the Renault Master.

In addition to a wide range of new safety technologies and convenience features, the company’s newest large van offers increased size and versatility compared with its predecessor.

In diesel form, the Interstar is available in Acenta and Tekna trim levels. Acenta includes manual air-conditioning, while Tekna adds a raft of upgrades for an extra £1,200 + VAT, including automatic air con, a heated windscreen, rear-view camera, front parking sensors and flank protection, a 12v plug in the loading area, full-size wheel covers and additional anchorage points in the load bay. An electric model – the Interstar-e – will be announced in more detail in the summer of 2024.

The Nissan Interstar enters the market with a wide range of factory-built conversions, including tipper, drop-side and box van options, as well as multiple panel van and crew van variants – L2H2, L3H2 and L3H3 variants at launch.

Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre variable turbo engine in a range of tunes offering power outputs from 105PS to 170PS and a WLTP fuel consumption figure of up to 41.5mpg, with a payload of just under two tonnes and a maximum towing capacity of 2500kg.

The revamped interior is said to offer car-like comfort and convenience, the steering wheel is more vertical than its predecessor and the dashboard features a 10.1-inch touchscreen angled towards the driver to make it easier to read and use. There are two large cup holders, large overhead shelves and 10 open storage areas, plus another three closed areas that together offer nearly 80 litres of stowage space, including a multipurpose central seat-back workspace unit and a large under-seat storage box. 

The Nissan Interstar is also equipped with a wide range of standard safety features, including Forward Emergency Braking, Drowsiness Warning and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

What MoT class does a Ford e-Transit require?

I am trying to find out what MoT class a Ford e-Transit 390 comes under? The gross weight is 3900kg but I have had different service centres say variously class 4, class 7 and HGV?
The Department for transport allows a derogation for electric vans, meaning those weighing up to 4.25 tonnes are treated in the same way as diesel vans with a GVW of up to 3.5 tonnes, allowing for the extra battery weight. This applies to both licensing and MOTs, meaning an e-Transit 390 requires a Class 7 MOT.
